I tried another browser and same deal as Safari.
I found a work around, yes, guess my expectations were too high. I will say, I would have had much less problems on the Windows platform. Ok, I will cut Apple a break here because its the new rollout of the Catalina, just as buggy I guess as any Windows rollout and following updates to the updates will fix it.

Your right, I expected more being a was paying a premium price for a Mac so far its no better or even worse then Windows. But maybe that will improve.
One thing that is far superior is speed and yes, the more lightweight feel of the operating system so if I get through any other bugs that might show up in the near future, I will still be glad I switched, because I do like the system and speed. If the bugs keep up, out the window it goes, well, actually it will go to EBAY.

Apple has removed customer reviews from its online store.

...Apple has removed customer reviews from its online store, as first reported by AppleInsider, and we’ve confirmed this to be the case. AppleInsider got a tip from a reader that the reviews had been removed from the US, UK, and Australian Apple Stores (which we have also confirmed).

...Apple’s choice means that customers can’t provide useful feedback on the products available on Apple’s store — especially if a product might be bad. There were at least 735 one-star reviews for the Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, for example, but now you can’t tell if it’s good or not just by looking at that page.

We’ve asked Apple for comment and will update this story with anything we hear back.

...Apple quietly removed the "Ratings and Reviews" section from its online store, meaning shoppers can no longer see online reviews of Apple products before they buy.
The removal comes just as Apple heads into the all-important holiday season. The iPhone maker tends to see a major sales bump through the last three months of the year thanks to people buying holiday gifts.

https://www.zdnet.com/article/why-i-may-dump-apple-in-2020-and-why-you-should-consider-it-too/

... Apple is increasingly drowning in bugs. I've written at length about how buggy the iOS 13 release has been. In fact, it's been so buggy that Apple is planning to change its internal development process. Problem is, Apple had a plan in place to make iOS 12 better, a plan that resulted in iOS releases that were plagued by some really nasty bugs.

...But it's not just iOS. The latest macOS Catalina release has had some nasty bugs too. These don't get as much airtime, but the uptake of macOS updates isn't as aggressive as that of iOS, and it isn't landing on hundreds of millions of devices within weeks of release.

....But it's also not just the software. Hardware quality is also not what it used to be. New hardware is released with bugs that take time to fix, battery life is pretty mediocre across all hardware (with the exception of the iPhone 11 Pro Max), and prices are still eye-wateringly high......The bottom line is that I feel like I'm paying premium prices for Apple hardware, but that I no longer get a premium experience.

...Switching over from the Apple ecosystem -- or ecosystems if you use iOS and macOS -- is not an easy task. And Apple no doubt knows this

...2020 will be the year that I give serious consideration as to whether I carry on down the Apple path...........there's a lot of good Android and Windows devices out there that are much cheaper than Apple's offering, and offer a good user experience. Sure, there will be rough edges, but there are rough edges with Apple hardware, and I'm paying top dollar to experience that pain.
